PEDIGREE REGISTRATION AND CODE OF CONDUCTEmma
Please Note: I am not associated with any registry clubs, groups or organizations. All my breeding herd and pet only hedgehogs are pedigree registered by me using Breed Mate the worlds premium pedigree registry program. This way all hedgehog family history can be tracked and so there is no inbreeding or over breeding and so if any genetic issues where to crop up can be easily tracked.Using Breed Mate allows me to provide all of my buyers with an authentic pedigree registration upon request.

As you will no doubt appreciate from the above info, pygmyhegehogforsale.co.uk is the first place for many people looking to learn about Pygmy Hedgehogs and the vital information they need to be able to make an informed decision as to whether a Pygmy Hedgehog is the right pet for them and also to be assured that if they do decide to purchase a Pygmy Hedgehog that it’s health and welfare has been the priority throughout and that ethical breeding practices have been followed at every stage, thus providing new owners well socialized and healthy hedgehogs.
Though there are many clubs and groups there is actually no official governing body specifically for Pygmy Hedgehogs in the UK. While there is a range of widely agreed practices to adhere to under the UK governments animal welfare act 2006, many rules or ethics these groups may have, have been created by the owners/founders/committees of said groups and are individual to them by what they personally believe from their own experience but can differ greatly per breeder, not necessarily making any specific breeder wrong, as long as, like myself they follow the animal welfare act 2006 found here.
With this in mind I have listed my code of conduct below. Please read in full, as though it is very similar to many other breeders code of conduct there are some vital differences that I have personally implemented to ensure my Pygmy Hedgehogs get the very best care.
Please Note: As stated above, some breeders may have different methods and practices for the Pygmy Hedgehogs so feel free to contact me with any conflicting information you may have been given from any other breeder and I will be happy to answer them.
A- I provide a safe and spacious comfortable living environment for my hedgehogs.
G- All my breeding hedgehogs and their offspring are registered to prevent inbreeding and to allow any genetic health issues that may crop up to be investigated.
